what is the best temperature and length to keep them in the oven?
I've already washed them so I'm just going to bake them as an extra precaution.
i just want to kill off anything harmful to my cham, I don't care if the baking process makes the wood look better. any help is greatly appreciated.

If you got the branch/stick fresh off a tree, and it didnt have any fungi, or holes in it. Like a sappling's branch. Than a good soak and rinse should do the job. If its a branch that has holes in it from bugs burrowing in it, than I would bake it at 350^F for like 20 minutes and you should be good.

I baked mine at about 250F for 2-3 hours, but I already had mold growth on them and I have been soaking mine for 24 h beforehand. Also those were pretty big and fat pieces, so I was paranoid about risking with higher temps :D anyway, it worked fine for me, gonna put them back in the terrarium tomorrow :)

Yeah I think I did like 30 min at 300 or something like that? The important thing is to just make sure you keep an eye on them
